File 307 - The Hidden Word []

It appeared that Kikuyo had a 10 million yen debt and needed the insurance money to pay it. So, the police staff and Muneyuki started accusing her and as she was about to be taken to the police station, Sonoko was stunned by Conan's stun watch and stopped them. After explaining the trick used and the evidence, Muneyuki gave himself in. It turned out that during Christmas, while Muneyuki was cleaning the things of her late daughter, he found the broken box of the tie her daughter gave to Motoo, her husband. And when he went to the airport, wanting to give the tie to Motoo, instead of seeing a griefing man, he saw a cheerful man together with Kikuyo. Three days later, Sonoko received a picture from Makoto after she sent her tea cup. It turned out that he used it as a vase, thinking that the gigantic tea cup is one. When Ran told Conan to help her take her potato chips, he noticed that she has used her tea cup as a place for stationery. Curious of what she carved in the cup, he too it and saw the words "Stupid Detective" under the cup, there was another carving- "I'll be waiting for you". Conan then gave Ran her chips and was overjoyed as he played his games.

Look at the Spoiler, who is the culprit?

The culprit is Masao Jinbo. Afterwards, Mouri picks up girls who are his fans and gives them a ride in the car. He and the brown haired man who he killed 5 years ago in the forest of suicide victims were involved in an embezzlement scam that acquired them 50 billion yen from a confectionery enterprise. They then decided to leave the money in a briefcase at an inn for safekeeping and to build its interest. The brown haired man had a feeling that his partner would kill him to keep all the money and so removed the bills to a hidden location leaving a threatening post death message in a jar. The brief-case now containing the money was under the possession of the owner. Jinbo decided the only way he could obtain the money now was to employ himself as a worker at said inn. He hired a Mouri Kogoro body double to retrieve the brief-case under the impression he would get paid. Discovering that there was only a sumo magazine (that actually contained hints to the treasure's location) the body double felt double crossed and threatened to tell the real Kogoro everything once he arrived. Jinbo killed his hired double to keep him silent, then managed to discover the treasure's location before getting caught.
